Winser Alexander's research spans the
areas of digital signal processing, genomic signal processing, parallel
algorithms, and parallel computer architecture. His current
interests include the development of parallel algorithms,
parallel computational structures and computer architectures for
digital signal processing with applications to communications, multimedia
and image processing and genomic signal processing.
His teaching interest involves digital signal
processing, application specific and special purpose computer
system architecture and digital system design.
He teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses
in signal analysis, digital signal processing and computer system design.
Winser served as the Director
of Graduate Programs for the ECE Department from August 1988 to May 1997
and from June 2001 to August 2002. He
has developed graduate courses in Multidimensional Digital
Processing and DSP Architecture, and he teaches courses at the
undergraduate and graduate level in Digital Signal
Awards and Honors
Winser has received many awards including the following:
In June 1993, Winser received the American Society
for Engineering Education (ASEE) Minorities in Engineering Award
for Leadership in the Conception, Organization and Operation of
Precollege and College Activities to Increase Participation of
Minorities in Engineering.
In September 1998, Winser received the Presidential Award for
Excellence in Science, Mathematics
and Engineering Mentoring from the White House Office of Science and
Technology and National Science Foundation.
In March 2000, Winser received the Dr. Janice A.
Lumkin Educator of the Year Award from the National
Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
